Looks like OBV 3 to me, as the crown and forehead dont join up smoothly (i.e, the crown sits slightly forward).

Just by going with the ribbon tip and jowel crease, I'd say a 4.

Looking at the book and your coin it's OH3, ribbon and chin match.

Also agree with obv 3. Crown is not lined up.

Now that I know what to look for, I agree that it's a 3 ... sorry I'm not a half dollar guy.
